    How does Abe expect to pay for this initiative? As of mid-year Japan’s public debt was roughly twice GDP, versus 156% for Greece.

      It’s probably much bigger in Greece, but they can’t admit it?

    “amid fears of an American pullback”
    So much for the so called “Asian Pivot” of the Obama administration. Our allies no longer trust us, and our enemies no longer fear us. Obama is the worst President in American History.

      “Our allies no longer trust us, and our enemies no longer fear us.

      I think Obama, excuse me, Val and ‘Chelle’s intent in foreign policy was to turn the US into a one boy cuddly toy, to quote the old Harry Nillson song. Who needs strategy, policy, practice, allies, when you have Dear Leader who sprinkles his magic on enemies and we watch them melt into the ground.
